Così fan tutte

By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

  • Despina mocks the sisters about taking new lovers.

  • Alfonso introduces the sisters to the brothers in disguise.

It begins with a bet and a question: Are all women fickle? In an attempt to assuage their fears, friends Ferrando and Guglielmo hatch a plan—complete with elaborate costumes—to test their betrothed’s fidelities. Utilizing the time-honored plot device of “fiancé-swapping,” Mozart’s Cosi is a lush and melodic comedy of bad manners.
